recently went back and acquired everything from Shabooh Shoobah onward......I've taken a liking to Elegantly Wasted (especially "Everything") and Welcome To Wherever You Are...

i've heard comparisons of welcome to wherever you are and achtung baby. except inxs released theirs first, and some inxs fans seem to be bitter than achtung baby got all the credit.

i'm starting to acquire everything (at the moment i've got kick, x, live baby live, and greatest hits) but i'm starting with their debut album. thank god for ebay as it seems their first two albums are now out of print. if i buy one album a month i should be done fairly soon.

I like Welcome To Wherever You Are, its actually one of my favorite INXS albums. I dont see the comparison to Acthung Baby though I dont think they are alike at all. Saying that though for the sake of the argument if they were alike sonically I think the reason they dont get the credit is because there is some "filler" on it. The first 5 songs are great but then it loses something for me. Acthung Baby is a complete album, some would argue no filler songs (although I think Tryin is sort of a filler). I also dont think Welcome is a radical departure for INXS from what they were doing prior to that. AB was a departure for U2 more so and I think they got more credit for taking a bigger risk from where they were at previously. Just my 2 cents.

The first two albums are also availabe on the Stay Young 1979-1982 (The Complete Deluxe Years) 2 disc set, along with some rarities. I believe it's an Australian release, but you can find it online easily enough.

Thanks for the tip! I definately need to check my video collection to see if I have THAT one!

I'd really love to hear a full-version cover, though... simply mind-blowing, I'm sure.

I love INXS - I loved them long before I liked U2. My Dad loved them too, so I grew up listening to them. I think I was 8 or 9 when Michael Hutchence committed suicide, and I was so upset. I still get choked up today when I see him on TV.

so yeah...who here likes them?
The same goes for me.
I started really getting into them last year, even though I've always loved their songs. I have their live album so far (Live Baby Live). I bought it on a whim and I couldn't be happier. I *really* want Kick though!! The funny thing is, is that I'm having a hard time trying to track it down. I know B&N has it, I saw it. The Rhino extra tracks ones. But, that's all. (!) oi

any thoughts on that Rockstar show coming next summer to CBS? Kinda surprised me when I heard they were auditioning for a new lead singer...at least in this way.

oh i agree with you completely. i've only heard the singles off that album and i don't see how the two can be compared. like you said, welcome to wherever you are wasn't a huge change from what they'd been doing.

i don't know what to think of the rockstar thing, to answer u2_girlie's question. i don't think bands should find replacements that way, especially in this case, because of what happened to michael.

I dont think they should replace rock stars with people from tv "talent" shows cause theyre all crap. I dont like one single singer/band from any of those shows. The blandest one always wins

I would pick up Welcome, you will enjoy it, good album. (I just realized I mispelled Achtung Baby twice on my prior post )

I saw INXS with the last replacement singer. The guy looked, sounded and moved just like Michael. I found the whole thing rather disturbing. The band sounded as good as ever though.

yes, yes i will pick it up, eventually. i find it's best for me to start in chronological order. i did it (more or less) with duran duran and U2 when i got into them. come to think of it, i've done that with everyone i've been into enough to buy all their stuff. i'm thinking i'm almost halfway there with buying their stuff, between what i've already got and what is on its way.

btw beli i was reading the last thread (discovering inxs) and you were asking about a video where michael was dancing strangely. are you talking about the video for just keep walking? he's got on a red shirt and the band's behind a white background? it was their first video so i guess you can't get much older than that.

The video was outside. He was dancing behind a campfire / bon fire. It could be Just Keep Walking. Im old.

Do you have the video on your computer? Or do you know somewhere I can view it online?

Big fan since 1981.
Have seen them perform here and in London.
Met Kirk Pengilly twice, at London’s Harvey Nicolls Department store the morning of their Wembley Stadium show on 13 July 1991 (live Baby Live DVD) and in 1993, I was standing in a queue of a bottle (alcohol) shop in Neutral Bay (Sydney), and he came up behind me with a slab of beer. I asked him “where did the name of (their new CD) Full Moon, Dirty Hearts come from”. He answered, “I don’t know, crazy Michael”. At that stage, he lived in the adjoining suburb of Cammeray.

Best CD’s

The Swing
Kick
X
Welcome to Wherever You Are
Full Moon, Dirty Hearts
Elegantly Wasted

Max Q (Michael and Ollie Olsen)
